XIV Congressus Internationalis Epigraphiae Graecae et Latinae

From Werner Eck:

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

nach Ende des 14. Kongresses für Griechische und Lateinische Epigraphik in Berlin sende ich Ihnen im Namen des Organisationskomitees die Abschlussrede. Diese E-Mail geht an alle, die sich für den Kongress angemeldet hatten, unabhängig davon, ob sie an der Tagung in Berlin selbst teilnehmen konnten oder nicht.


Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

wir sind am Ende dieses 14. Kongresses für Griechische und Lateinische Epigraphik angekommen. Es waren sehr dicht gefüllte Tage mit einem breiten, sehr unterschiedlichen Programm, das hoffentlich allen etwas gegeben hat. Dass man einem Kongress auch selektiv teilnimmt, ist legitim. Aber viele haben an allen Plenarsitzungen teilgenommen, und am Nachmittag das ausgewählt, was sie besonders interessierte. Dass mancher dabei manches nicht hören konnte, weil uns die Fähigkeit zur Bilokalität noch nicht geschenkt ist, ist eine Normalität eines großen Kongresses, die man nicht vermeiden kann. Sonst wären noch mehr von der aktiven Teilnahme ausgeschlossen gewesen.
Wir als Veranstalter sind Ihnen allen sehr dankbar, dass Sie diesen Kongress so aktiv mitgestaltet haben. Denn nur Sie konnten die Absicht, die mit der Thematik:

XIV Congressus Internationalis Epigraphiae Graecae et Latinae

Filed under: CIEGL,events,news,report — PaolaTomasi @ 23:04

Denso di eventi concomitanti, il Congresso berlinese si è articolato ogni giorno in una sessione plenaria, cui sono seguite diverse sessioni tematiche pomeridiane. Punto di partenza è stata la storia dell’epigrafia come disciplina accademica intrecciata strettamente alla temperie politica e culturale di Berlino, le cui tappe ha ripercorso l’intervento iniziale del prof. Stefan Rebenich (University of Bern). Il congresso si è snodato attraverso le varie tematiche tradizionalmente oggetto di studio (, che spaziano dall’ambito privato a quello pubblico e riverberano le molteplici sfaccettature delle informazioni veicolate dalle iscrizioni: dalla edilizia pubblica, gli spettacoli, la gestione territoriale, l’esercito, si passa alle iscrizioni in ambito privato, di valenza funeraria, religiosa o anche sapidamente personale (A. Varone, ).
Accanto alla storia dell’indagine epigrafica attraverso le fonti manoscritte, si sono affrontate anche questioni metodologiche e nuovi progetti, quali la riedizione di CIL, V, per non parlare delle iniziative in ambito digitale.
Per il 2012 è tutto: appuntamento a Vienna nel 2017!
